The super fight between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic more than lived up to the hype.
Brock Lesnar confronts Daniel Cormier inside the octagon after being called out by the new two division Champ!
Speculation has run rampant over Lesnar's future for much of this year, starting with Lesnar posing for photos next to White on the night of WWE Elimination Chamber 2018. Lesnar then proceeded to insult Francis Ngannou and Miocic before telling Cormier he's coming for the belt. "When was the last time I was bigger?" The deal included Lesnar being allowed to fight in the UFC, which is something he insisted on if he were to re-sign with the pro wrestling giant.
But when they're standing and striking, that's where Miocic's size figures to be a factor. "I never knew what I could become but tonight I got the answer: Heavyweight champion, baby!"
The sometimes outrageous Perry (12-3) ended a two-fight skid with a disciplined, punishing performance against Felder (15-4), who hung in despite seriously injuring his right forearm and getting a frightening cut near his left eye. Cormier swarmed, the referee had no choice but to stop the fight. Cormier said he will only fight Lesnar if the WWE star is clean.
He's dealt with this before, in other words, and given that Cormier's professional record is officially 20-1-0, he's done enough that people probably shouldn't be writing him off just because his arms are shorter than his opponent. Once Miocic confirmed he was fit to continue, they went back at it. I was hitting him with some good shots. "That's all I care about right now".
"Yeah, you're strong", Cormier said. White had previously said Lesnar would be returning to the company later this year.
That's consistent with how most experts are breaking it down. So as great as Anderson Silva was, he tested positive I think two times. Conor McGregor was the UFC's featherweight champ in 2016 when he took the lightweight title from Eddie Alvarez.
